    Look at horses with a SABEEL conection.....as far as diva is concerned...carries a hugh load of 58KG....and no horse with this weight has EVER won the cup...so I pass....I like Bazeel....won the Auckland cup with only 50KG its a leightweight...in the AK Cup...it went like a train...nothing could stop it....all Sabeels horses are BRED for distance...... but there again any horse can win it as they are ALL CHAMPIONS...SO YOU PICK

    Tech /A... for $1 unit in trifecta = (no. of horses in first leg) * (no. of horses in second leg -1) * (no. of horses in third leg-2)

    i.e your diva-field-field would be 1*(24-1)*(24-2)= $506 (assuming all 24 start)

    Think Big won in 75 with 58.5 kg, prior to that I think Rain Lover got up in 69 with more than 58kg. Of course in 1890 Carbine lumped the equivalent of 66kg to victory.

    Bart's gonna bring home cup#12 with Strasbourg!!!

    Nah, seriously, its a good roughie for the trifectas, but you can't go pass the Diva. Eye Popper and Railings only chances to know her off in my opinion.

    Anyone here ever bought a racehorse? How did it go and how much of a good investment is it? Thinking of getting involved...one day.

    Bottom line is if you havent the money to lose then dont gamble at all. imo invest it wisely

    Just for curiosity sake does anyone have the results of the last 10 trifectas? Or is there a website that you could obtain what they paid and how many horses ran and then we can do some maths and see if it is indeed the odds are stacked in your favour or not. Would be a good exercise me thinks.
